To ensure a smooth transfer of knowledge to participants own work environments we offer the chance to work on an individual basis with our professional coaches.

Why this program?

Reconciling ecological, social and economic sustainability in management and technology development is one of today's major challenges. This program enables participants to support their organizations in the transformation towards a more sustainable future and to identify and actively shape new, innovative technology trends at an early stage.

The TUM Campus in Straubing with its focus on biotechnology and sustainability contributes to the uniqueness of the part-time course. An important balance of academic input and practice-oriented elements promotes exchange and networking among participants. By bringing in a challenge from their own professional environment, both the participants and their organizations benefit from the program.
